Attacking & Blocking                                             [DJATT5D]
==========================================================================

During fights you have to attack otherwise you won't win, but you also
have to block, because someone might be stronger.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Attacking                                                       [DJATT5D1]
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Attacking all depends on what kind of style you choose. If you choose
the style Streetfighting than you should concentrate more on hitting 
the person with your hands rather than legs. You should also be 
improving your stats in upper strength. Same goes with every other 
style Kickboxing - Legs - Lower Strength, Martial Arts - Use the walls
- Speed, Wrestling - Use your surrondings - toughness and last
 Submission - Grab everyone you can - health.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Blocking                                                        [DJBLO5D2]
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

It is implrtant to block in this game otherwise other players/comp 
will beat you up in no time. Blocking is also really cool because you
can just counter all the moves your enemy makes. Just hold block and 
when the enemy just hits you press any attack button and you can 
counter their move.

VI. Career Advice                                                 [DJCAR6]
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you want to enjoy a long and successful career that will see you
becoming NYC's biggest and baddest brawler, you should pay close 
attention to these handy hints and tips...

==========================================================================
Train to Win                                                     [DJTRA6A]
==========================================================================

At the end of every fight and tournament you will receive a bonus 
amount of development points that you can spend in the gym. These 
points can be used to train your fighter, buy new special moves and 
learn new styles. To begin with concentrate on improving your 
fighters stats then learn a new style to help you get the better of
your opponents. The special moves are all very nice but these are 
just for show and won't help you get to the end of the game.

==========================================================================
Easy Cash                                                        [DJEAS6B]
==========================================================================

Every time you fight in story or battle mode you will earn cash 
depending on your performance in the ring. The more you mix up your 
fighting techniques the more cash you can earn to spend on your 
character in the shops. The cash can be used to buy new clothes, 
tatoos and jewelerry to impress the crowd.

==========================================================================
Team Competitions                                                [DJTEA6C]
==========================================================================

Try to concentrate on one particular opponent without ignoring his 
colleague alltogehter.  Look to hit the opponent you feel is weakest 
with your biggest moves resulting in his energy being lost more 
quickly and the potential for a knockout all the more likely. If one 
opponent is dangerously low on energy, try not to get distracted by 
the other fighters in the ring keep after the man you feel is 
weakest and ensure that he is battered at every opportunity. You can
gain bonus points if you help your partner so watch the action and 
be ready to step in when he needs you.

==========================================================================
Free For All                                                     [DJFRE6D]
==========================================================================

These can be extremely easy if you are careful although sometimes 
you will be in for a real challenge. Your best bet is to stay well 
clear of all the fighting to begin with as the other fihters will 
often amuse themselves by punching each other. When an opponent 
attacks simply knock them to the ground and then back away again
to keep your health high. As soon as one of the other fighters 
gets low on health try to use hard punches to knock them out from 
a distance but remain in a position where you will not get double 
teamed or maybe even triple teamed. If you step into the action 
to early all three fighters will pick on you and its almost 
impossible to block or escape.

VII. Fighting Tips                                                [DJFIG7]
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

When it comes to all out action Def Jam is the place to be. However 
once you find your self squaring up to your opponent with the crowd 
all around you begging for blood there are one or two things you 
ought to know...

==========================================================================
Best Moves                                                       [DJBES7A]
==========================================================================

It is invetiable that as the game progresses you will find one or 
two moves that you can pull off best with each fighter. However if
you pull off the same move over and over again you will lose points 
and cause less damage to your opponent. The best way round this is to 
perform one of your favourite bigger moves and then try a couple of 
other attacks before returning to the move you are good at. This will 
cause plenty of damage and keep your score points up.

==========================================================================
Tough Opposition                                                 [DJTOU7B]
==========================================================================

Whichever character you are playing as it makes sense to take note of 
what it is each individual opponent is good at. If for example you find 
that yoor opponent is persistently reversing your grappling moves then 
be sensible and concentrate on striking him from a distance. There is 
no sense in playing right into his hands now is there?

==========================================================================
Hard or Soft                                                     [DJHAR7C]
==========================================================================

Each fighter has two sets of moves those from hard grapples and those 
from soft grapples. Understanding the difference between the two is 
crucial. Moves that are possible following a soft grapple are simpler 
to pull off and harder to reverse. However they cause less damage to 
the opponent and are worth less points. Moves that are available 
following a hard grapple will cause more damage and are worth more 
points, but they also have a high risk being reversed. As a rule it's 
best to use soft grappling early on and once a decent lead has been 
established begin to introduce a few hard grapple moves. If your 
opponent is close to defeat it's best to play it safe and stick to 
soft grappling as the potential for a damaging reverse letting your 
opponent off the hook is greatly reduced.

==========================================================================
Use the Crowd                                                    [DJUSE7D]
==========================================================================

When fighting in the non sealed arenas the crowd is very close to the 
action and can help you defeat the opposition. Throw your opponent into 
their arms and they will hold onto them for you to hit hard or even bash 
them with an item they are holding. the crowd can be used to great 
effect and can even help when performing KOs.

==========================================================================
Blazin' It                                                       [DJBLA7E]
==========================================================================

Building up the momentum meter is the easiest way to win in DJFFNY. If 
you manage to execute a special move whilst blazing and your opponents 
health is flashing "danger" then a knockout is guaranteed. However its 
important making the most of your blazin spell, and sometimes this means 
patiance is required. Should you qualify to start blazing before your 
opponent is in trouble, try and get in a couple of big hits quickly (its 
worth gambling with a hard grapple in such situations). Then when they 
are hurt, go into blazing mode by waggling the right analog stick and 
give them a couple more hits to ensure that their health is low and 
unlikely to recover to a safe level before you have finished. Only then 
should you perform the finishing move. If you try to early and then their 
health is in danger than you should use your special style move. ex; 
kickboxers have a special kicking combo.

==========================================================================
Surviving a Blaze                                                [DJSUR7F]
==========================================================================

Should your opponent enter a blazin period than you should be more careful
and never let your opponent grab you otherwise you will lose lots of 
health. Another way, which i really dont like, is to just run away from
your opponent and run around the ring. Only when he has finished should 
you get back to striking distance.

==========================================================================
Use the Surroundings                                             [DJUSE7G]
==========================================================================

By far the best way to cause serious damage is to use the surroundings.
Throw them against poles, metal fences and other solid items around the
fighting area. While your opponent is stunned smash their head repeatedly
against the obstacle for major damage. But beware that they will be trying 
to do the same to you.

|Description|Rock is one of my most worst creations ever     |
|           |because i started with the style streetfighting.|
|           |I beleive that this style is the worst style in |
|           |the whole game and that you should never repeat |
|           |this horrible mistake.                          |
